regulations. that's not income tax. that's not health care. that's federal regulations. the small business administration, not some republican, said it costs $11,000 per american worker to comply with federal regulations. $11,000. we're not saying that all of that's bad. what we're saying of the hundreds of thousands of federal regulations -- and by $520 , $1.8 trillion, million of that burden was passed in the last four years and there's $87 billion worth of regulations waiting just this year to be passed. now, the federal reserve and treasury, they testified at the financial services committee every year and they say if you can increase the gross domestic product by 2%, we can create jobs. 2%. if we can grow it from 2% to 4%. let me submit that in that 14% of the gross national product that's absorbed by federal regulations, we can find one out of seven of those regulations that we can change. i'll close by telling you a good one. the chairman started by talking about the cement industry. the e.p.a. proposed a regulation that would have put 200,000 american cement workers out of work. w
an increase in the earned income tax credit yesterday in their budget. they are going to pan that. they have no intention of helping the folks earning minimum wage in our country. you know what, republicans, they should tell the truth. they should tell america that they want people to work for 40 hours a week and still live in poverty. that's what republicans are in essence saying. >> well, your state, voters at least, are big supporters of this. the recent poll shows that 71%, overwhelming numbers, in general for the idea of raising the minimum wage. and when you get more specific to $10.10 an hour, it's still a pretty strong 62%. is that how, though, this is more likely to go, is it going to be state-to-state, or do you think there is real hope for a federal minimum wage hike to $10.10? >> well, there are states that lead on the minimum wage. connecticut is one of those, vermont is one of those, washington is one of those, washington state, washington, d.c., for that matter, is another location. so i think states will lead, but i predict that the political pressure for republicans is going
likelihood of any significant action. tax reform -- you will see a lot about this and next 48 hours as dave camp, the ways and means committee, unveils a very ambitious bill. lots of interesting features including a little surtax on the wealthy that might go against republican orthodoxy. he talks about maybe even nd income to abo surtax which is a very controversial subject. he would do away with a lot of safer tax breaks, as you know. this is something that has made most republicans very uneasy. they do not want to have attention drawn to anything that controversial. i would say the chances of tax reform this year are at best 10%. i'm being generous to even say that. next year with all ryan as head of the ways and means committee, things could change. then there is immigration. being an optimist who would like to see a bill, i think there is a chance that things could get a little more serious after the primaries. midsummer, when so many republicans are going to look over their shoulder to a right-wing challenger, i think immigration is totally off the table as an issue that could move. mi

on the senate floor and without a shred of evidence said that mitt romney didn't pay his taxes, oh, i don't have any evidence of it but the word is out. the word is out that harry reid is a liar, and the word should be out that any senate democrat that follows his lead will have the word "former" in front of their name. >> they continue to double down on the strategy saying that the problems are not as they're being represented. but voters will embrace them in the mid-term, as the dust settles people will see there are positive stories, as well. and certainly there are positive stories, people who didn't have coverage are getting it. those people do exist, as well. >> but they said before obamacare came into effect they said this is all just republican right wing propaganda. as soon as people see it in action they will love it. we're four months into it, and it is dropping in popularity. if you have had personal contact and tried to navigate the website, if you're that colorado woman in that document who talked about who had her premiums go up 70%, you don't love obamacare. the problem is not wi
